From coastline to tree line
forWater field sites in British Columbia are providing new insights into the connections between forest management and drinking water quality
Location: British Columbia
Importance: Characterized by coastal mountains with high to very high rainfall, British Columbia's forests are intimately connected to both urban and rural drinking water supplies.
Disturbances: Debris flows, windthrow, and gap disturbances (coastal) and wildfires (inland)
Understand British Columbia's forest sector impacts on drinking water treatability in source waters with differing dissolved organic carbon concentrations and compositions.
